Dear Bill,
Attached for the Forum is a photo of Haminoea antillarum (d'Orbigny, 1841) from Florida, USA. The 7mm specimen was collected June 10, 2003 from Sargassum that was attached to the substrate in 1m at Long Key in the Florida Keys.

Best wishes,

Thanks Colin,
In most books only the shells of these animals are usually illustrated. In fact most species of Haminoea were described from their shells alone, so it is good to get photos of the animals.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
